Where I stayed
We touched down in Cancun and miraculously 3 bags came through on the baggage belt!
We took an ADO bus into the town and with bags on the back is we made our way to our accommodation, Hotel Tanka. We were staying in the old town of Cancun which was thankfully away from the Hotel Zone, or something we would describe as a bad cross of Vegas and the Gold Coast!! We went to a local restaurant and had our first real Mexican dinner, guacamole & chips to start and fajitas. And with 2for1 happy hour in progress we couldn't be rude...margaritas all round!!
We took the local bus down to the hotel zone to find out what all the hype was about. After being on the bus for 45min we realised we missed our stop so it was a quick dart across the road to catch the bus from other direction. The main club zone was stereotypical cheesy american! We walked around a little bit and were constantly harassed by club staff. We stopped in a small bar on a side street and ordered strawberry margaritas. When they eventually arrived the strawberries were sour so let's just say that was our cue to get the bus back to 'real' Cancun!
Day 8: Monday, 6 January
We took a local bus to the ferry port, Puerto Juarez. It was only a 20min boat ride to Isla Mujeres.
